Structural dynamics

7.5 credits

Structural dynamics is an area with a wide range of applications spanning from aerospace, vehicle and machine to buildings. Within this area structures’ dynamic behavior is studied; this includes performance, comfort, life and vibrations.
The omnipresent strive of weigh reduction enhance the need for knowledge within structural dynamics to clear the designs regarding loads and dynamic behavior.
Within Structural Dynamics more often than not finite element models, setting out from knowledge within Solid Mechanics, are used. To validate that a model sufficiently represents a real structure, vibrational tests are used; for that theory from Signal Analysis.
Tuning of the model can be required due to discrepancies between test data and analytical data; this is an optimization problem. Structural Dynamics is an increasingly important area within product development.
